BRENTWOOD, MO (KTVI) - Brentwood police hope an upcoming meeting will ease residents’ concerns about neighborhood safety.

The meeting, scheduled for Tuesday evening, will address recent reports of vehicle break-ins. Brentwood Police Chief Dan Fitzgerald said all of the cases have something in common: the doors were left unlocked.

Shelby Reed said both of her cars were entered. Fortunately, nothing was stolen.

“The glove boxes were pulled up. I have some sunglasses cases that were ripped apart,” she said. “It seemed that they were shuffling, looking for something. But I don’t know what they were looking for. I didn’t have it.”

Some neighbors reported electronics and loose change stolen from other vehicles. Cases were reported on Pine and White Avenues, west of Brentwood Boulevard.

Brentwood police said recent vehicle break-ins at the Drury Inn are tied to an arrest made in Florissant earlier in the week.

Police stress the importance of keeping valuable items out of sight, and to keep doors locked.

The community meeting will take place at the Brentwood Recreation Center at 2505 Brentwood Boulevard.
